GROUNDBREAKING!  

   JUNE 20, 2019   

The Centennial Club

The on-going heroes supporting Beta Upsilon

Sigma Chi at Washington State University

Keeping the light on...forever

 Our unlikely hero  

Let's do it for all the Sigs who came before us. 

Honoring the past and the future by donating now

If the brothers who gathered in 1919 to open our original chapter house could look into the future to see in 2019 what we're doing with our new Centennial Chapter house, they'd be thrilled. We are carrying the torch they past down through the generations. As Brother Larry Culver has said, "we've all warmed ourselves on the fire started by others before us. Now it's our turn to add a log to that fire for Sigs who come after us." So please keep donating so we can fund the purchase, delivery and installation of all furnishings, chairs, beds, lights, desks, washer and dryers, library and chapter room amenities, landscaping, courtyard features, interior and exterior lighting, our Sigma Chi yard sign and much, much more.

In a hundred years, maybe they'll be writing about us, our character and our generosity.

Just visualize opening day August 2020 when you walk through that door and see what you helped to fund. What a joy it will be. Do it for the guys shown on this page. Do it for future Sigs. Do it for your heart.

To donate to the FF&E Fund: www.wsusigmachi.org

In 1919, our original Sigma Chi chapter house opened. Right: Chapter Founders and brothers gather in a Pullman church for the installation banquet.

ABOVE: Opening our first house in 1919 at Colorado and Monroe.

Registration is open for the largest gathering of WSU Sigs - ever. Brothers from all years will join our 100th birthday bash. If you miss it, you’ll be hearing about it the rest of your life.

SEPT. 20: Friday morning golf (email coug72@aol.com)

SEPT. 20: Friday, 5pm-9pm, full dinner, drinks and fun

SEPT. 21: Saturday, 9:30am-noon (for 1pm kickoff), full brunch, drinks and more fun

SEPT. 21: Saturday after-game party at the house (except with an evening kickoff)

Price for registration goes up August 1. To register, go to www.wsusigmachi.org or call the hotline 206-512-6544.

Come see all the guys and check out construction of our new Centennial Chapter House

The latest bulletin from the committee on rebuilding the Beta Upsilon Chapter House has stirred me to make one more effort to send something, besides the promise to write a prayer of thanksgiving and dedication for the groundbreaking...

We monks do not receive a salary... At the moment, I can afford to send you this $50.

                                        In hoc, David Allen (class of 1952)

For whom are we building the Centennial Chapter House? For the oath we took. "And if feels good!" says Del Schwisow ('61).

1952: "PLANS HAVE BEEN MADE TO BUILD A NEW HOUSE... AND HAVE NOW FINALLY SUCCEEDED." 67 YEARS AGO!

1952 Consul Val Jensen and his beautiful wife Mary Ellen (Theta) recently reminisced that the alumni declared 67 years ago plans to build a new chapter house. It's why Val, now 90, has donated and urges you to do the same until construction is complete and doors open. Go to www.wsusigmachi.org

ERNEST O. HOLLAND

JOHN S. McMILLIN

ON THIS SITE 1928-2003

stood the old chapter house of WSU Sigma Chi. It's bricks embedded here.

Brother Ernest O. Holland, WSC President, founded our chapter in 1919

and lead construction of the house in 1928 that stood for 75 years. 

Brother John S. McMillin, the Fraternity's first national president,

presided over installation of our chapter November 15, 1919

at a house on Colorado and Monroe Streets.

Monument made possible by Brother Col Terry Thomas (1991)

and Roche Harbor Lime & Cement Co., once owned by McMillin,

later by Thomas' ancestors, where these limestone rocks were quarried

for the Grand Opening of our Sigma Chi Centennial Chapter House on

August 8, 2020.

Raymond G. Munns

The original owner of this book

Just a short time after the end of WWII, a young Technical Sergeant learning Army radio operations named Raymond G. Munns inscribed his name in this

Ernie Pyle book "Brave Men." The farm boy from

Pomeroy, Washington had already fought four long

years in the Pacific including Guam and Iwo Jima,

where his little brother Ivan was killed after saving

four lives and trying to save a fifth.

Layne DeWitz, Ray's daughter, died just 35

days before her father

Ray Munns' home in Pomeroy, Washington

Ray eventually returned home where he ran an insurance company Obenland & Munns and had a very large family.In 2011, his daughter Layne died. In her obituary, it said Ray "was a strong role model and set the finest example exemplifying what integrity is." Just 34 days later, at 95, Ray also passed away. Ray was a civic leader and had a 53-year marriage to Shirley. This book made it's way to a small antique store in Pomeroy. Jeff Burnside purchased it in 2020 after which it found its way home to a place worthy of Raymond Munns and Ernie Pyle.
